We’ll link those tasks to building a fun little table with lots of design possibilities. You will use machines lightly where they work best, bandsawing legs and cutting mating mortises and tenons. But otherwise you will work by hand through a range of typical tasks in which hand tools do best: flattening, truing, shaping, and smoothing surfaces to a polish. We will talk about ways to integrate hand tools in your process, sharpening, tuning, and lots about design and detail. You will be building a small side table as it is an ideal project to hone some skills and try out some new design ideas.
